Future star, Greg Grewcock, today took 10 wickets in one innings against the league’s top team, sending reverberations around the Battrick world that this sleeping giant might be starting to stir.
The 10 included 2 monster batsmen of 215k & 160k wages! It took young Greg to 40 FC wickets for the season, topping the league wicket taking charts.
It also took him to 150 competitive wickets, not bad for a 21 year old … and one learning his trade against some of the very best teams in the country.
GG said he owed a lot to the on field advice of 40yr old legend Vic Fernandes. The commentary from his 4th wicket exemplifying this:
Fernandes had a little word with Grewcock just before that ball, perhaps he saw something on the wicket to exploit. It worked too, the umpire rightly calling LBW.
